Like last week, I'll be live-chatting during the Kansas State-Nebraska game. Unlike last week, I'll be in the press box and to commemorate Nebraska's exit from the Big 12, we'll be offering more free lifetime subscriptions to the Big 12 blog to every 10th and 12th question asked or comment made. So, make sure to be here for that. The chat post will go up just before game time. Here's what it looked like last week.
- The color red is not allowed in Kansas State's athletic facilities. And tonight? It's Bill Snyder's 71st birthday.
- Manhattan is buzzing with anticipation for tonight's game against Nebraska, reports Austin Meek of the Topeka Capital-Journal.
- Texas Tech wants its offense to evolve through the use of a tight end, writes Don Williams of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
- Let Robert Griffin speak his mind without being so sensitive, writes Mac Engel in the Dallas Morning News. I could not agree more with this, and in general as well, not just as it relates to Griffin.
- All of a sudden, Oklahoma's schedule is looking a lot tougher, writes Jake Trotter of The Oklahoman.
- Why in the world is Oklahoma State playing a game in Lafayette, Louisiana? John Helsley of The Oklahoman has the answers.
- Nebraska may regret a move to the Big Ten, writes Kevin Haskin of the Topeka Capital-Journal.
- This may be Missouri's best offensive line under Gary Pinkel, writes Mike DeArmond of the Kansas City Star.
- When Baylor and Texas Tech play this year, it's the Bears' turn to have the more dominant offense, writes Jeff Miller in the Dallas Morning News.
- Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne says he's confident the contact between former assistant John Blake and Ndamukong Suh will not have negative repercussions for the Huskers, reports Mitch Sherman of the Omaha World-Herald.
- Colorado's special teams isn't as bad as it was in 2009, but it's still in need of improvement just about everywhere, writes Kyle Ringo of the Boulder Daily Camera.
- Texas fans were spoiled by Colt McCoy, so don't be too hard on Garrett Gilbert, writes Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News. He also says Texas A&M can't talk about improvement until wins arrive.
